Good morning blog friends,
I’m so please with the first day of responses on my giveaway, Thank you all! I truly love blogging and sharing my creations with all of you. I hope to be able to do a little more posting once things settle down here.
I finished this doll up yesterday and couldn’t wait to share him with you all.
This is a Sweet Meadows Farm pattern~ “Scarecrow for hire”. I changed him a bit and love how he turned out. Originally he has gloves for hands (didn’t have any gloves) and was holding a chicken and egg. I made a sunflower for him to hold instead, because around here sunflowers sell and chickens don’t. He’s a big guy and has the round ball head. I just love making the round doll heads. I thought they would be so hard to do, but I guess just like anything else, practice makes perfect!
I also finished up a few of these cuties! I made these witch hats with mice on a spring last fall and they sold very well, and so far this year anything with mice are doing well. This is my own design.
Last night I cut the sweet annie and put in tubs with the glycerin solution, so I hope that it turns out. I did grow sweet annie last year and just dried it upside down, but I did not like how it turned so yucky brown and brittle. I know prim is brown, but this was dead brown if you know what I mean. So I’m hoping for the best. Also, I think I may be allergic to this stuff as I now have a sore throat and heavy felling in my chest. I was really itchy after cutting it and went right in an showered, but I guess it was so aromatic it got to my sinuses. I did not have this problem last year when I cut it down. Then again this year I had five times as much to harvest.
Well, gotta get busy making more fall goodies, so have a great holiday weekend!
